Mercato OL: A Lyon defender extends 

French left-back Melvin Bard signed a new lease on Wednesday with Olympique Lyonnais.

In the sights of Bayern Munich at the start of the summer, Melvin Bard hesitated for a long time before making a choice. The Germans offered the 19-year-old defender a 3-year contract a few weeks ago. The French international hopefuls finally decided to continue the adventure with his training club.

Two more years in Lyon

Gaining more and more esteem from the Lyon coach Rudi Garcia, thanks in particular to a successful preparation, Melvin Bard can hope for a significant playing time this season within the Rhone club. This would be one of the big reasons that pushed him to choose extra time at OL. The French left-back is now linked with the Rhone club until 2024.

“My choice has always been that of OL”

In a statement to the club’s official website, Melvin Bard revealed why he decided to continue the Lyon adventure. “For me, it is a great pride to extend my contract here. OL are my favorite club, that’s where I’ve always wanted to succeed. I aimed to be professional, I signed in 2019 and it gives me great pleasure to extend, said the French defender. I had some requests from other clubs this summer but my choice, and that of my relatives, has always been that of OL“.
